A newly revised edition of an American classic, Sam Shepard’s Pulitzer Prize—winning Buried Child is as fierce and unforgettable as it was when it was first produced more than twenty-five years ago.A scene of madness greets Vince and his girlfriend as they arrive at the squalid farmhouse of Vince’s hard-drinking grandparents, who seem to have no idea who he is. Nor does his father, Tilden, a hulking former All-American footballer, or his uncle, who has lost one of his legs to a chain saw. Only the memory of an unwanted child, buried in an undisclosed location, can hope to deliver this family

4.0 Buried Child - Sam Shepard
This piece is one hundred percent dark, twisted, and wonderful. I did, however, feel that after reading it I wanted to give Mr. Shepard a hug and a plate of tiny tacos to feel better.

I admire the scripts when they're well acted, but they're too reliant on performance to be interesting to read. And may I also add that as much as I admire Shepard (and I really do), I'm so grateful not to be living in his miserable world.
